Topic tags/keywords: cherry salvage

I have a chance to save some decent wood from going into the dumpster at work. a couple of days ago one of the other trades were demolishing a conference table. They know that i salvage wood so they asked if i wanted it. It’s all cherry. some are 2×4.Photobucket

This is a win-win situation for everyone. The salvage company got its “trash” cleaned up, the wood didn’t end up int he landfill and you have some nice wood to change into furniture and you got it at a fantastic price.

Great find!!!!!
